The Lone Star
In one of my gazes of the dark sky,
I found a star. Nothing but a star.
It was winter and the wind was dry,
When I heard it speak or maybe it was I.
Twinkling as it has been doing,
Maybe since the time before time,
It came down while I was viewing,
And stood in front of me, all in its prime.
Eons old it knew us all,
Every dweller on this Earth.
Said it is humans who fall,
For not knowing their home’s worth.
I saw in silence as your ripped her apart,
My friend Earth who weeps to me,
Time is slipping and so is your heart,
Allow my friend to live and be.
It didn’t plea nor did it threaten,
But told me what Earth can do.
Mother Earth who is now tired from sweating,
Is the same small planet we see as blue.
It vanished just like that,
Leaving behind so many thoughts,
But it was right, all through the chat,
Either be better or join the dots.
